As you probably know, I love art. One of my favorite ways to display art in our house is with a gallery wall. Today I'll be sharing some fun ideas for your next gallery wall.
You can use any of the above ideas to create a really unique wall of art in any room.
Here are some more fun tips that I use when assembling my own gallery walls.
#1. Mix & Match.
In my Office Gallery Wall I mixed a sailboat print, weird-foreign-maps, small mirrors, and some of my favorite photographs that I had printed in black and white. The majority of this wall was sourced straight from thrift stores. It doesn't need to be expensive to look great.
#2. Have fun mixing different sizes and shapes.
If you want to mix and match, go for it. Pick 2-3 sizes/shapes and repeat them throughout the gallery wall. This makes it more pleasing to the eye. Or you can just use all totally unique items. I'm actually loving that idea more and more as time goes on, and am already thinking about my next gallery wall.
#3. Draw a line.
Here is a drawing I made of the office gallery wall to help you see what I'm referring to. See the line? Decide on a 'line' for your gallery wall. It can be vertical or horizontal, and you can place it anywhere. You can also use multiple lines, kind of like a grid. Use the line/lines to anchor your frames. You can see more about this here.
#3. Make it symmetrical
Create a gallery wall using a series of similar art, slightly varied. I created a gallery wall like this in my living room using botanical prints (found on eBay) and dollar store frames (spray-painted gold). You can see more pics of this gallery wall here.
#4. Keep it simple.
I kept it pretty simple when I created the Bird Art gallery wall in our guest bathroom. I printed out black silhouette birds on our printer and framed it in simple white frames.
#5. Get reflective. Use mirrors.
If you're running low on art, no prob. Throw an interesting mirror (or two) in the mix! I did this with our Mirror Gallery Wall in our guest bedroom.
I hope I've left you with some great ideas for creating a gallery wall of your own! Thanks so much for stopping by!
